what operating system and compiler?

Turbo c compiler and windows xp operating system

Well you had better use a different compiler becuse you can't access win32 api mouse functions from that 16-bit compiler. MS-Windows != MS-DOS.

This blog has some insights and input on win32 api and mouse interactions.

They still offer the Visual Studio 2008 C++ IDE as the express version (found on the right most tab)

I would rather suggest you apply layer of abstraction for sake of simplicity and may be future Xplatform, if it is not a homework. Jump yourself into wxWidgets,GTKmm, or QT
They really simplify things and abstract you from dirty calls to OS directly.

I hate LPVOID and some other ugly Win32 stuffs :)
